Impactful Planet

Sustainability is our priority

Our hostel was designed with sustainability as the key element. We aim to rduce our carbon footprint as much as possible.

  • The hostel is built with natural material, and forested with plants. It serves as a living space and an inspiration for a sustainable lifestyle. Reconnecting people and people with nature.
  • Our spaces strive to coexist with nature: We have an open space lounge with natural light falling through ceiling-high windows, a treehouse, luscious plants, and a rooftop garden.
  • There is a strong sustainability focus on reducing waste, recycling, reuse of rainwater, and composting.
  • While we are not 100% plastic free yet, we are constantly working towards processes that are oriented towards generating zero waste. For example, we do waste analysis for example plastic bag analysis and reduce the amount every year.
